#23: Challenge of the week: Hip bridge

I like to give myself a weekly challenge in order to stay motivated.There are 7 levels for every challenge, so everyone can join in. Feel free to modify the challenges so they fit your personal needs. Remember always to listen to your body, don’t push yourself too hard but keep moving. Doing only these challenges is not a balanced way to get or stay fit. If you have doubts about exercises, or your body, always ask a specialist for advice!

Hip bridgeThis exercise is my favorite exercise to change from core-exercises to leg-exercises when I am doing circuit training.  For me it is important to take it easy and perform this exercise careful, to prevent back injury. I do have some back problems sometimes, so training my core is an important part of my routine. I myself add the same amount of core-exercises (like site-ups or crunches) to this challenge, so I go for level 4, which means: 280 hip bridges and 280 sit-ups.

level 1: 70 reps
level 2: 140 reps
level 3: 210 reps
level 4: 280 reps
level 5: 350 reps
level 6: 700 reps
level 7: 1000 reps
